    An elderly woman walked into the Bank of England one morning with a purse
    full of money. She wanted to open a savings account and insisted on talking to
    the president of the Bank because, she said, she had a lot of money.

    After many lengthy discussions (after all, the client is always right) an
    employee took the elderly woman to the president's office.

    The president of the Bank asked her how much she wanted to deposit. She
    placed her purse on his desk and replied, "£165,000". The president was
    curious and asked her how she had been able to save so much money. The
    elderly woman replied that she made bets.

    The president was surprised and asked, "What kind of bets?"

    The elderly woman replied, "Well, I bet you £25,000 that your testicles
    are square."

    The president started to laugh and told the woman that it was impossible
    to win a bet like that.

    The woman never batted an eye. She just looked at the president and said,
    "Would you like to take my bet?"

    "Certainly", replied the president. "I bet you £25,000 that my testicles
    are not square ."

    "Done", the elderly woman answered. "But given the amount of money
    involved, if you don't mind I would like to come back ! at 10 o' clock
    tomorrow morning with my lawyer as a witness." "No problem", said the
    president of the Bank confidently.

    That night, the president became very nervous about the bet and spent a
    long time in front of the mirror examining his testicles, turning them
    this way and that, checking them over again and again until he was
    positive that no one could consider his testicles as square and reassuring
    himself that there was no way he could lose the bet.

    The next morning at exactly 10 o'clock the elderly woman arrived at the
    president's office with her lawyer and acknowledged the £25,000 bet made
    the day before that the president's testicles were square.

    The president confirmed that the bet was the same as the one made the day
    before. Then the elderly woman asked him to drop his pants etc. so that!
    she and her lawyer could see clearly.

    The president was happy to oblige.

    The elderly woman came closer so she could see better and asked the
    president if she could touch them. "Of course", said the president. "Given
    the amount of money involved, you should be 100% sure."

    The elderly woman did so with a little smile. Suddenly the president
    noticed that the lawyer was banging his head against the wall. He asked
    the elderly woman why he was doing that and she replied, "Oh, it's probably
    because I bet him £100,000 that around 10 o'clock in the morning
    I would be holding the balls of the President of the Bank of England!"

    Reminds me of the story by Damon Runyon that became "Guys and Dolls."
    A young man on his way to the big city is told by his father "If a guy comes up to you and is willing to bet that this brand new un opened deck of cards will, on command, eject the Jack of Hearts who will squirt prune juice into your ear, do not take that bet, as you will wind up with an ear full of prune juice.."
